186. MDs are not scientists
and multiple regression is total bullshit. While he does correctly point out faults in Lott's stuff, it seems to make the same mistake. While different disciplines can provide useful information to fill in the blanks to complete the picture, an MD or an economist working outside of their specialty really isn't. Their even less valuable when they take grants from organizations that want a certain outcome as part of an echo chamber.
Being cited in a text book does not really does not mean anything to me.

Other than you agreeing with it, what makes it exemplary? Have you read, say for example, Kleck's work?
